Granting Procedure Has Changed

Our foundation has moved to a fall granting timeline for the 2019 granting year.  Applications for grants for the 2019 year will be due by September 30th 2018.  The Grants Review Committee will study the applications and make recommendations to the board.  The final decision will be made by the board at the October meeting.  Grant recipients will then have until August of 2019 to complete their projects and submit their final reports to the foundation before the grant money will be issued.

Will Night Well Received

 

The Brokenhead River Community Foundation sponsored a Will Night on April 25 at the will nightBeau Head Seniors Center as part of Will Week in Manitoba. Over 70 people attended the event to hear long time local lawyer Mike Wasylin provided a general overview of the importance of having a Will, Power of Attorney and Health Directive and that they are current, properly executed documents. Contact Mike’s office or your lawyer to discuss these important items. Watch for future Foundation activities in your community.
